I'm not ready to start a new project before I leave so I made more cobblestone blocks. These aren't trimmed yet. I plan to take the blocks with me so I won't have complete withdrawal from projects and I'm sure there will be some time to play with them. I have about 100 blocks made right now and will probably make a few each day this holiday weekend.
My finishing blitz kept me from doing a lot of things I wanted to do the last 4 months. One of those things is to play with the stash packs from Vicki Welsh's Etsy shop, 10 fat eighths, in many color combinations. This is a photo of 2 packs of oranges. I love the surprises when I open the packs. There is every shade of orange imaginable here. Some pieces are way too precious to cut into! I don't know if I'll get around to cutting any right away but I will have them opened out and pressed and ready when I get back. My house sitter doesn't sew so they won't be disturbed while I'm gone.
